Derry/Dublin/Edinburgh: Orchard Gallery, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Fruitmarket Gallery, 1987
30 x 21cm, 52pp self covered offset litho, b/w, artist’s book that also acted as the catalogue for the exhibition. Content of various computer-generated outline drawings under Penck’s instruction (including one of the artist’s signature on the cover), some additional reproduced drawings and a 6pp interview with Penck alongside three reproduced holograph poetic statements by the artist. The sparse drawings and the cheap quality of the paper used give the impression of a sophisticated children’s colouring book. Only 500 produced. Some browning to the pages due to the paper used but otherwise fine. Rare and mostly unknown artists book as tabloid newspaper.
